Porte Aperte

Poetry, Photography, Book Design

Porte Aperte is a project which takes place in Siena, Italy. Over the course of a week I wander the streets of Siena and step into intriguing spaces or buildings with open doors.  I sit and journal my observations and thoughts for 10 to 30 minutes. I then photograph the exterior of the space.

Every location holds traces of its visitors, be it a sculpture from hundreds of years ago, or a whiff of someone’s just stubbed out cigarette.
